Thanks for the response and good advice.

I must be going deaf. Just returned from a drive... cooling fan sped up at idle, so all is fine.

Cooling fan no longer speeds up at idle

I have a 2001 330i with manual transmission with 78000 miles. Previously when I'd drive the car for 15-20 minutes, when I'd get out of the car to open the garage, I'd hear the cooling fan speed up...

Avoid.

I dropped over a grand there, and in my opinion, they did pretty half-assed work. I won't be going back.

Thanks for the info e.barr. That sounds about right. Considering the clowns that worked on my car, that wouldn't be surprising.

Thanks... kind of what I suspected might be the problem, but I guess I expected the symptoms to be more erratic and random.

Why's my oil warning light coming on?

I can't figure this out. If I drive 5-10 minutes, then turn off the engine for a few minutes (i.e., visiting an ATM, filling up with gas, etc.), when I re-start the car, the oil light comes on and...

They were first done at about 40K, of which about 30K of that on Dinan stage 2 suspension. I had the reinforcement plates added at that time.

I don't remember...it wasn't cheap. The total bill was $1100, but I also had an oil service and the rear shock mounts replaced a second time - this time with none OEM ones. What a difference.

coolant reservoir leak, compliments of a shop

That is true. So are statistics incorrect? I bought 5 tickets (the max), so aren't my odds 4100/5 = 820? (yes, my original post was incorrect...I just mis-remembered what it was).

On the other hand, when there is a passenger, it's probably a kid who can't handle swinging open the door of a big ass coupe. I've actually seen this hapen more than from another driver. :)

Nice detailing.....compliments of the dealer
